Our Shared Lives service (sometimes referred to as adult placement) gives you the opportunity to live as part of a family in the heart of the community. This shared experience provides you with the opportunity to live your life as independently as possible. We can offer this in a variety of ways to support your needs: living with family, staying for a short break or sharing community activities with a matched carer.
This enables you and your carer to enjoy activities and life experiences together.
Shared Lives is more than just providing a roof over your head. It is about providing friendship and companionship tailored for you. It enables you to live an independent life, whilst promoting your health and well-being. This is a real alternative to residential care.
Shared Lives can include:
Do you have room in your home for an extra person and an interest in providing care and support to those who need it? You could become a provider in our Shared Lives service.
Aspire will give you the training and resources needed to take someone into your home and become a Shared Lives carer. Taking someone into your home and offering support can be a challenging but ultimately an extremely rewarding experience. Contact us today if you would like to become involved.
